Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals.

Our family of four booked into the School Holiday 'Megafauna Funshop' program which commenced with a talk at Caveworks & ended with a very informative tour of Mammoth Cave. Our Tour Guide Alan kept all (kids aged from 4yrs to mature adults) engaged with his informative discussions about the Megafauna and inciteful guide through Mammoth Cave. All up, it was... More

This self guided tour is very interesting. This cave is massive with some very different fossils. It is worth a visit

We visited Mammoth Cave as it was included as part of a ticket that we bought. It's not a poor or bad cave by any standards but my family enjoyed the Jewel Cave and Lake Cave much more. Perhaps it's the human interaction factor - the guides at both the other caves really made the walk around the caves interesting.... More

Really enjoyed this cave as it was self guided and interesting from the perspective of palaentology. Felt very eerie to be in caves where aboriginal people came and sheltered. The expanse within the cave is the most impressive of all three (Mammoth, lake and jewel).

It was easy to navigate our way through the cave using the MP3 player. The audio guide gives a detailed description and you can progress at your own pace. There are about 160 steps so it is not suiable for everyone.

With this cave you can take your time and expect to spend an hour or two taking in all the history with the free audio provided. The first part of the cave is also wheelchair accessible. Tip: If you're in a hurry try and ensure you are not stuck behind a tour bus, once you get caught behind a tour... More

Id heard wonderful thingw about the caves so I set forth with a bucket full of enthusiasm. Entry is $22 which I think is pretty steep for a self guided tour (not like they're paying wages!). The audio guide was full of technical information that would go over the head of most generalists as it did with me. The cave... More

Wonderful natural phenomenon. Well worth the experience for young and older people. Personal audio guides are well worth experience.

One of the most fascinating places I've see for years. The guides are knowledgeable and have a great sense of humour. Well our guide did. We started at the top peering into what looked like a giant hole for the uninitiated. Walked down a few steps, well several hundred actually, into a totally different world. Walking along the boardwalk we... More

The tour of Mammoth Cave is self-guided. It has all the regular features of limestone caves like shawls and stalactites. They look great and are very well lit, though I would rank it behind the Jewel Cave as a spectacle. With no reassuring guide and a steep descent, this cave is not for everyone. It also gets pretty dark down... More
